HR Technology Conference to Be Held Online Due to COVID-19


The HR Technology Conference & Exposition is the latest industry event that discards the idea of group gathering in the light of COVID-19 by moving into an online event. This digital conference will be held on Oct. 27 – 30, 2020, and presents free pass to the attendees. The event includes the exhibits of new technology and the keynotes by Leapgen founder Jason Averbrook and industry analyst Josh Bersin.

The program is still under development, and the LRP Media Group that organizes the event says several live-streamed events will be provided. It states about the participation of hundreds of HR technology vendors in the conference’s virtual exhibition. Some of them are – Cornerstone OnDemand, ADP, Lever, Ultimate Software, Oracle, BambooHR, Kronos, Phenom, and Workday.

Rebecca McKenna, LRP VP of global events & publisher, says, “By going entirely virtual, we’re safely building new avenues for our attendees while continuing to deliver world-class access to the technologies and resources that will help HR navigate the now and what lies ahead.”

HR Tech is committed to offering the HR community with what is required at present, such as avenues to see how innovation is helping the people during the coronavirus outbreak as well as some guidance to help the team cope with the present situation, and what lies ahead. As the industry’s leading independent event for over 20 years, the HR Tech conference will have an unrivaled cutting-edge agenda that aids HR and IT professionals from companies of all sizes and regions.

With a noteworthy objective of driving HR accomplishment through innovation, this online occasion is proposed for those looking to constantly improve utilization of current HR frameworks and those hoping to put resources into it. The specialists offer an understanding needed to settle on basic HR framework choices that are known to fuel your business further while supporting your association’s extraordinary needs later on.

The online HR technology event does not surprise the participants considering the new norms offered by global lockdown, such as pausing the business travels or the gatherings of all sorts and the economy as a whole. After SHRM doused its Annual conference in June, and UNLEASH canceled its Las Vegas event in May, most purchasers and vendors assumed that the HR Technology conference would be digitized or postponed.

Besides, the HR technology vendors have lately reported the disruptions to their sales efforts that exclusively rely on industry-wide events such as UNLEASH and HR Tech and vendor-sponsored meetings like SAP SuccessFactors SuccessConnect, Ultimate Software’s Ultimate Connections, and Phenom’s IAMPHENOM.

The impacts of COVID-19, such as inability to meet with the clients in-person, and present demonstrations to them has heavily slowed down the purchasing discussions throughout the economy. However, telephone and telecommunications firms are the least impacted in sales action, as per the latest report by eMarketer.

The website reported that approximately 21% of organizations in that segment had their sales efforts disturbed. In addition, around 60% of personal and consumer services firms and 46% of manufacturing companies are disrupted.
